This species of Polygala with woolly leaves was recorded during our recent trip to the area…
Leaves do not agree with Polygala erioptera to which I was inclined to place this… please help to id…
Now I am left with one more interesting Polygala sp. from the area, will post later..

Please check with Polygala crotalarioides.

amit uid Polygala:
Help me in Identifying this Polygala sp.
Collected from Bageshwar, flowers purple, roots tuberous and aromatic (smell similar to Methyl salycilate used in the brand IODEX)

Please check it for Polygala furcata (just a guess). Our plant had erect stem 5-10 cm, and larger leaves.

To me appears close to images at Polygala crotalarioides Buch.-Ham. ex DC.
